    I just bought a brand new 450 key with blank blade and electronics for only 11.09 inclusive of postage.

    Being somewhat of traditionalist I cut my spare with a file. Kind of difficult on the 451, I haven't figured that out yet but I have the blank for when do figure out how to do it.

    You actually only need to cut one side but of course the key will only work one way round if you do.

    Also does a few other functions for the Smart (clutch re-teaching is very handy!)
    (just try to overlook the "legit" software they ship with the Delphi ... and that the Delphi might be a knock off too)

    I didn't realise you could code keys with the Delphi. Do you have a link to the key reader on ebay, please?

    I assumed he was referring to the radio receiver reader that is part of the car. About 7 posts back.

    I need to reinstall it on a new laptop, i'll do a quick write up on how to do it and let you know.

    Main thing to remember is to make sure you have internet disabled on your computer when you install and run it!

    The key won't go into the lock if only one side is cut.
    Also on the 451 keys, waffers 3 and 6 are inverted, so they work on the opposite side of the key to the other 4 waffers.
    This type of key is cut using a mini milling machine.

    I have alot of knowledge regarding keys if anyone needs help.
